Summer is nearly here and we’re so ready to embrace the biggest fashion trends of 2017.
The cold shoulder trend still remains huge with deconstructed shirts; 80s party wear and the slogan T-shirt will be your new go-to wardrobe essential. But will you be brave enough to try the full-on florals and the ruffles?
We’ve curated catwalk trends that will most influence your wardrobe choices (and bank balance) this year. Which looks will make the biggest impact on your wardrobes this summer?
80’s Party Style
Think metallics, disco leggings and the one-shoulder dress – the ’80s is back, everyone! This is pure night-time attire – short minis and neon spandex. It’s definitely not for the shy types.
Slogans & Logos
So wrong yet so wrong, the slogan tee is here to stay! T-shirts with a political stance (as seen at Dior) are all the rage – it’s time to let your T-shirt do the talking.
The Deconstructured Shirt
Hallelujah, the trusty shirt isn’t going anywhere. On the contrary, it’s getting even more interesting. The off-the-shoulder trend is still going strong, but now we’re getting ruffles, over-sized sleeves, peek-a-boo cut-outs and even cropped shirts hit the runway. It’s official: Shirts are not boring for 2017.
All the Ruffles
Basically if you’re not wearing ruffles on, you might as well stay indoors. And don’t be scared – it’s not all girly – we caught a glimpse of black leather ruffles at Alexander McQueen, and punky ruffles at Preen.
Statement stripes were spotted everywhere during the shows – if you’re not into florals, perhaps we can interest you in a full-on striped ensemble, because that’s the thing, these stripes aren’t subtle – they’re full on.
